Collaborative event between the Center for Nanotechnology in Society and the
California NanoSystems Institute will be first in a quarterly discussion open to the public
UC Santa Barbara's Center for Nanotechnology in Society (CNS) and the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) will launch a collaborative forum called NanoCafé on Wednesday, April 11, 2007 from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. at UC Santa Barbara.
Each NanoCafé will cover a different nanotechnology-related issue. This first NanoCafé will be an introduction to nanotechnologies, how they affect our lives, their benefits, and potential risks involved. Speaking at the first event will be CNSI Director Evelyn Hu and CNS Co-Director Patrick McCray.
Nanotechnology is the manipulation of materials on a very small scale. With it, scientists can create new technologies to make, among other things, better and faster information systems, medical devices, and energy systems. It is also, however, an emerging science with little known about its risks and implications. Home to both CNS and CNSI, UC Santa Barbara is one of the leading international centers for nanotechnology research.
Participants are invited to listen to the speakers and participate in an information question-and-answer session following. Wine and cheese will be served.
A campus map may be downloaded at www.ucsb.edu.
This event is free and open to the public. Space is limited. RSVPs are requested.
